Robert Verdi shared his Mother’s Day tips with me and about 29 other bloggers this Tuesday, and I thought that some of the products were so grat that I just had to share! Check out the live Ustream video from the event (unfortunately I was sitting literally under the camera and you can’t see me) or head directly to the sites for some of my favorite items: The Avon Marimekko Tote (only $10!!!), the Clipa purse hook, The Brelli Umbrella, +Ginger + Liz Nail Polish, and Jane Iredale Cosmetics.

Holidays with expectations are always difficult. Take Christmas for example. Birthdays, New Years — they all get grouped into the ‘what should I get so and so, what should I wear, what are the plans, who’s driving’ etc. Sorry to say it, but the approaching Valentine’s Day is also one of those days chock full of expectations, regardless if you are single, or have a significant other. Valentine’s Day is tricky, because it is a sensitive celebration; it’s supposed to be so personal, which goes hand-in-hand with being thoughtful and to a certain extent, creative. This, I must admit that I enjoyed sitting back and letting Robert Verdi and the Accessories Council do the work for me! At his most recent ‘Tweet This’ event, Robert gave somme thoughtful date ideas and suggestions, while providing his product picks to boot. Some of my favorite Robert Verdi date suggestions were:
- $50 date idea (although I think this could definitely be way cheaper): Classic Date – dinner from the local pizzeria and the current chick flick. (Fashion Pulse Daily’s thoughts: this works for those of use dateless on February 14th too!)
- Place a single piece of chocolate in all of her usual places in the morning of Valentine’s to make her ordinary moments special – by her jewelry on the dresser, inside the medicine cabinet, and next to her coffee cup in the kitchen (FPD’s thoughts: I think this could work with other things than chocolate; a simple note that says ‘I love you’ will also suffice!)
- Invite your date over for a pre-dinner drink but instead of going out, surprise them with their favorite meal by candle-light in an unusual part of your home – coffee table, terrace, or even the bedroom (FPD thoughts: candle lit dinners will never by overrated in our book, plus what a fun idea to eat in an ‘abnormal place’; just make sure you have a tray to bus the dishes and leftovers out of there)
Some of Robert’s gift suggestions included: watches for him and her, Rebecca Cole Grows blooms (very cool, see pic), Godiva chocolate, Swarovski Crystallized Charm Bracelet (FPD will be giving one away!), a Cole Haan patent leather jewelry case, and my personal favorite, Diane von Furstenberg cat eye sunglasses.
With these accessories and Robert’s tips, you’re sure to definitely set the bar high, but after all, who really needs expectations anyways?

Out of all of the items I received at the event, the Roku got immediately confiscated by my boyfriend and set-up, and I have to admit it is pretty great! You can stream your Netflix “watch instantly” movies via the Roku, as well as ‘rent’ movies via Amazon.com Video, play music through Pandora.com, and other features that I have yet to explore.
